Amazing Train Market in Bangkok

Amazing Train Market in Bangkok - Funny Train Station

This is a very funny train station; the Thai vegetable market vendors pull back their temporary stalls and remove their produce off the railway track to allow a cross-country train to pass through the middle of the town of Maekrong, 60 kilometres west of Bangkok, Thailand. The bustling market, in the middle of the town, has to scramble from the tracks four times a day as trains pass, a scene repeated in other rural centres and some city slums across Thailand every day.

Check out this video.  First we see the train rumbling slowly into Bangkok's station.
